This article is called, “What is wrong with the Churches?” I believe the churches have failed in their duty as Disciples and what God commanded us to do. I do not think this article is one that will be very well accepted in this present evil world. I also do not believe many so-called Christians, will be affected by this article, because there is a lot of Biblical Truth they will reject. I expect many that read this article will agree that it is true but will never act upon it. Many times, the truth hurts. And many confuse Religion with Christianity. The difference is hell and heaven.
But unfortunately, that time never comes. This article will be primarily to Christians, but those who are not Christians can learn a lot from it. IT IS A REAL SHAME TO SEE CHRISTIANS FALL BACK INTO A RELIGION, Religious Practices. Galatians 1:6 “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:” Please understand this: Christianity is not a Religion with religious practices. Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ who is God.
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT
The subject is “DISCIPLE.” I think I would well to start with a definition of disciple. What is a disciple and what is a disciple supposed to do? “A personal follower of Jesus during his life, especially one of the twelve Apostles.” Websters Dictionary says, “one who accepts and assists in spreading the doctrines of another: such as a Christianity.” Christi Pride said, “Nowadays, anybody who believes in God and Jesus can call themselves a Christian. There are many who pack churches, or don’t even attend church, who believe Jesus is the Son of God and died to take our sins away. These people would all call themselves Christians. However, they may or may not have received the gift of salvation through Christ. 1. Believing is not the same thing, as 2. following and believing in God. 3. And believing is not the same thing, as believing God at what He says.”
Professing Jesus and following Jesus are 2 different things. Are all Christians Disciples? THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. What is the difference? COMMITMENT AND OBEDIENCE. I believe the very last words Jesus spoke on earth is very important. Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, (the original greek says “MAKE DISCIPLES) baptizing them in the of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” GO MAKE FOLLOWERS, DISCIPLES/FOLLOWERS AND TEACH THEM AS I HAVE DONE TO YOU. THIS WAS AND STILL IS JESUS COMMANDMENTS FOR HIS FOLLOWERS AND IS STILL THE SAME COMMANDMENT FOR YOU AND I TODAY-AMEN. Do you not understand this is the COMMAND of the Savior? Too many see it as alternative.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCT
I use the word Product here when it can easily be other terms, and people in this world completely understand what a product is. Also, they understand it in the sense of something that they truly want or need. Most of the time they relate to buying and selling of products. Friends, I submit that our world today sells a product in churches today rather than discipleship with obedience and commitment to God and His Word. But what are they teaching in their church? 1, All are welcome, come on in and sin. All beliefs are welcome and all immorality is acceptable. Come on in and buy my book that will tell you how God wants you to be rich. We have the health and wealth gospel (which is no gospel). Come on in and we will show you fake miracles using fake gifts that no long exist from the Bible. Come on in and enjoy the rock concert and light show.
Next week Oprah will be here with Kanye West. Autographs will be signed after the services. ($3.00 a piece-that is a bargin). Preachers with false doctrine soaking believers for money because they need another multi-million-dollar mansion and another jet plane to fly in. Mega churches where the money flows, and they occasionally throw in the name of Jesus. Oh, we have praise and worship services. Well, which preacher are you worshipping? John 4:24 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” In spirit? This is the Holy Spirit. Is He even welcome in you church or does He conflict with your program?
In Truth? That is the WORD OF GOD. It also conflicts with your new progressive fake gospel that does not offend anyone. Again, where is the discipleship with obedience and commitment to God and His Word? Where is the Biblical teaching of God’s Word? You will be very lucky to see anyone who is a real missionary. This is the “RELIGIOUS PRODUCTS” that are being sold in churches, and worldwide churches. The more SPECTULAR, THE BETTER. BUT NO REAL GOSPEL MESSAGE OF SIN AND THE SAVIOR. We no longer tolerate any teachings or words that we consider “HATE SPEECH” and is offensive to the world, (such as the Holy Bible). We now accept how there are MANY ways to God. SALVATION IS NOW SOLD, LIKE AND ICE CREAM STORE, COME ON IN AND PICK YOUR FLAVOR, BECAUSE ALL RELIGIONS ARE TRUE AND EQUAL.
I think that someone is thinking, “Boy you are really critical of people. The response to that would be this. No, If I am critical here, then I am critical of myself first. Every thought and word that I put here goes through my mind and heart before it ever gets to be typed. It hits me first and does affect and speak to me first. We live in a very EVIL day. It is really a shame on the Church to see how far Christians have fallen away from their duty and God’s Word. It is a shame to see what all God has been replaced with. IS JESUS NOT ENOUGH? Is the Word of God, not enough? Man, and his modern-day methods of WORSHIP may satisfy the world, but it will not satisfy God. Biblical Doctrine today is formed on “public opinion”, (Political Correctness and Wokeness), not on the words of Christ, not on scriptures. Churches in this world is exactly where the Lord said we would be before he comes. I am sure someone will say you are very harsh. Yes, I will agree with that because it so hinders the4 body of Christ. But I will have to agree with Karl Vater of Christianity today’s assessment, click and go see.
There have always been problems throughout history in all the churches. Just read the Lords personal message to the 7 churches in chapter 1 -3 in the book of Revelation. I believe the real problem in all churches is that we are human and even Christians still have a sinful human nature. And never ever forget Satan is real and hates the Church. That has also been shown throughout history.
Experts say since our time as we have known it, there has been over 4200 false Religions on earth. I personally believe that Satan started every false Religion on the planet. God is no longer welcome in the world He created, and His Word is “hate speech” according to the globalist. They want to delete God and His work and set the stage for the great reset and 1 world Religion. Then they will hand the entire system over to the antichrist during the tribulation period, soon coming on this earth. Do not judge every Christian on earth by what you see perverting churches. God has always had a remnant of people and still does. We should be looking up and watching for His soon appearing in the Rapture of the Church.
I really believe from everything I have seen how discipleship is almost non-existent. How many Christian pulpits teach the Christians their responsibility before the Lord? And I have actually heard Christians say, “THAT IS THE PREACHERS JOB.” Churches have changed and now mixed public opinion and placed it over God’s Word. Know for sure that will judge harshly because of this. There are too many people who are willing to get saved but not willing to FOLLOW JESUS. They are willing to have a SAVIOR yet do not want to become a disciple, it might cost them something. To many are not willing to deny themself or repent of anything, especially any sin. They are not willing to change their minds, which would change their own behavior.
Who is willing to change the desires of their own flesh and turn to Christ? Self-Sacrifice for Him. These are marks of discipleship which are missing in preaching from pulpits. God is more than love. I talked about PRODUCTS/RELIGIOUS PRODUCTS which even Christians and the world are buying into. Their message is God, wants you to prosper, have everything you want and be rich. Buy my book it tells you how. I am rich and successful and here is how I did it. (WORLDLY AND FALSE). People will jump on this while rejecting, the true way to Salvation. That is the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the eternal payment for our SINS. There will be riches in heaven, and I am willing to wait. I THANK GOD FOR THE BLESSINGS, HE GIVES ME EVERYDAY. I have no use for another gospel or religious products, that “DOES NOT” comes from God, but man. I hope you feel the same way.
If you are not a Christian who has been saved by the blood of Jesus, the death burial and resurrect of Jesus, then please leave me a message below in the comment section. I will be glad to tell you how to be forgiven here on earth and forgiven forever. This concludes “What is wrong with the churches. P.S. JESUS IS NOT A PRODUCT OR FOR SALE. HE IS FREE. RAY
John 3:16-18 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is NOT condemned: but he that believeth not IS condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW TO UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE TALKED ABOUT IN THIS ARTICLE.
